The Curiosity & Powerful Learning Series

The Curiosity and Powerful Learning manuals are designed for teachers and for school and system leaders who are embarked on a school improvement journey. The manuals describe how schools can lift student learning. The steps are drawn from practical experience, tested and refined in schools over time.

The Crucial Role of the Teacher

Teachers share a significant responsibility in preparing young people to lead successful and productive lives. The National Professional Standards for Teachers (the Standards) reflect and build on national and international evidence that a teacher’s effectiveness has a powerful impact on students,1 with broad consensus that teacher quality is the single most important in-school factor influencing student achievement.2 Effective teachers can be a source of inspiration and, equally importantly, provide a dependable and consistent influence on young people as they make choices about further education, work and life.

Calmer Classrooms

Understanding the experience of the abused and neglected child assists us to develop compassion, patience and empathy. It is a key intervention in itself.

Curiouser & Curiouser

Curiosity is the engine that drives learning. Curiouser and Curiouser maps curiosity into student learning actions. The manual identifies teaching actions that optimise learning actions.

The Case for Inclusive Learning Systems

In Australia in 2014 there were 2,083,119 young people in primary school and 1,506,867 in secondary school. It is estimated that approximately one in five young people of high school age is out of school, although accurate data is difficult to obtain. Meanwhile, nationally, there are over 900 flexible learning programs, educating over 70,000 students each year.
